House In Leiria / Aires Mateus

House In Leiria / Aires Mateus, © FG+SG – Fernando Guerra

From the architect. The site is on the outskirts of Leiria, in a high position overlooking the city.

© FG+SG – Fernando Guerra
© FG+SG – Fernando Guerra

The functions are banal: a house divided in private area with bedrooms, and social area with living-rooms. The private areas are at street level under the plot, around a central courtyard with rooms opening to private patios in a intimate environment. The living rooms are around a void, that collects light from above and gazes the castle at the city centre.

© FG+SG – Fernando Guerra
© FG+SG – Fernando Guerra

The house is a recognizable archetype emptied of its centre by the light designed by a three heighted courtyard that opens horizontally at the garden level. The bedroom courtyards, revealed in the garden, relate with this archetypal object providing different readings on its scale. Scale and volume are controlled in a chaotic context, with a clear identity that from its core relates with the historical legacy far away: the Leiria Castle.

Can I ask you guys from Arch Daily how you give your ratings? All negative comments on this wonderful piece of architecture you appreciate with plus + and all positive ones with minus - ! Shouldn't this be a rating depending on the quality of the comment and not on the likes or dislikes?

^ I AGREE ...maybe a work of art but of true architecture I doubt it..

jorge · April 13, 2012

so poetry now a days is close from its surroundings, from the city and each of the inhabitants of the house.. What kind of living is this house suggesting??? One that is completely unconnected from reality??

zoroaster · December 02, 2012 07:15 AM

Maybe the surroundings aren't quite so bad for the house to be so closed off, like someone else said upthread, but I don't see it as inherently inappropriate for a house. In Japanese cities, for example, they're often closed off -- different cultural contexts. Besides, if the clients wanted to make their house church-like or like one of those skyspaces by James Turrell, that can be valid too, there are certainly precedents in architecture.

Melanda · March 08, 2012

Uma casa excelente. Uma autêntica obra de arte. Uma casa de sonho...

Mas será que as paredes que estão abaixo do chão não vão ao longo do tempo ficar cheias de humidade???

I really don't know how this project got licencing... The security issues on those "holes" on the ground are so evident! I'd like to see the licencing plans for the project... I'm pretty sure the architects are breaking some laws here... Its not need to say that here in Portugal this is considered "false declarations" and treated as crime... But it seems that the starchitects are above the law. Its really sad to see professionals like this become stars.

I must disagree with everybody. I really don't think that surroundings are so hideous that you that you don't put any window to them: "The site is on the outskirts of Leiria, in a high position overlooking the city." You can have your view only to the sky or white walls. I wonder how you can convince client to something like that???
